Hey there, I’m
I build innovative products on the web keeping design in mind. I’m currently in my third year of undergrad in Computer Science and Engineering.Say Hi!
Hi! I’m Akash, a creative 21-year-old who loves building products with code.
Since then, I have been working on improving my skills in Web development. I decided to dip my feet in web because I wanted to build applications that were easily accessible to anyone on any device. It always motivates me when I hear how my project helped someone solve their problem.
I am doing my undergrad at PES University in Computer Science and Engineering, and have also interned at smallcase as a frontend engineer where I worked with a variety of interesting technologies on the web. I can’t stop talking about front-end development and user interface design these days!
I constantly learn new and exciting concepts in computer science and web development. I try applying these concepts to solve real-world problems. Few technologies I enjoy working with:
- HTML, CSS
A peer-to-peer file sharing web app I built to solve a problem I faced while transferring files from my phone to my laptop without having to upload files to a cloud account or download specific file sharing apps.
Blaze became the #1 Product of the day on Product Hunt and gets about 900 weekly views. DigitalOcean is sponsoring the infrastructure for this project. Technologies I learnt while building Blaze:
A color palette generator from an image I built to learn the Rust programming language. Building Pigmnts also introduced me to various clustering algorithms and how WebAssembly works at a fundamental level.
- Web Assembly
- CLI development
A productivity tool I built to manage a lot of tabs open on our browser. UnTab provides a beautiful search interface to search tabs, bookmarks, history and also perform quick actions with just a few keystrokes.
I built UnTab in the FOSS Hack 2020 and it was one of the winning projects. UnTab is available as an extension for both Chrome and Firefox. UnTab has a powerful themes and plugins API that makes it possible for anyone to extend UnTab’s feature set.
- Browser Extension
- Framer Motion
- Tailwind CSS
Talks & Workshops
I conduct talks and workshops to share my experience in different fields with the community and network with like-minded peers. This quote keeps me going — “The best way to learn is to teach”.

I document my learnings from building projects on my blog with the hope that it will help fellow curious developers like me. Though it takes time to write these blogs, I always come out with more understanding of the topic than I originally started with.

I’m open to hearing about new opportunities. Feel free to reach out to me if you have a question, or just want to say hi!Get in Touch
